In order for rugs to be sustainable, everlasting, and reasonable, they must be washable. You can find the perfect size, color, pattern, or pile of the rug but if it isn’t easy to wash, it's a moot point to purchase it. Washable area rugs are kids-friendly, pet-friendly and eco-friendly as well. Having machine washable area rugs means you can get away with any kind of dirt or stain very easily. Rugs can also be a breeding ground for allergies but frequent washes mean you can get rid of them effectively. Place washable runner rugs in high-traffic areas to keep things clean at all times.
